Sri Lanka have named a strong squad for the upcoming Asia Cup, commencing 27 August in the UAE.
The squad will be led by their regular skipper Dasun Shanaka with Charith Asalanka as his deputy. Sri Lanka will begin their Asia Cup campaign against Afghanistan on the opening day of the tournament at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.
Binura Fernando and Kasun Rajitha, who were named in the original squad, will not tour owing to injuries sustained during the SLC Invitational T20 League 2022. Asitha Fernando and Pramod Madushan are the proposed replacements for the injured duo.
An uncapped 21-year-old left-arm seamer, Dilshan Madushanka, has found a place in the squad. Another notable inclusion in the squad is Ashen Bandara, who last represented Sri Lanka in July 2021 in a T20I against India.
Also returning to the T20I mix are the experienced duo of Dinesh Chandimal and Dhananjaya de Silva, and Jeffrey Vandersay, all of whom missed Sri Lanka’s last T20I series against Australia at home in June which the visitors won by a 2-1 margin.
Sri Lanka squad: Dasun Shanaka (c), Danushka Gunathilaka, Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Ashen Bandara, Dhananjaya de Silva, Wanindu Hasaranga, Maheesh Theekshana, Jeffrey Vandersay, Praveen Jayawickrama, Chamika Karunaratne, Dilshan Madushanka, Matheesha Pathirana, Nuwanidu Fernando, Dushmantha Chameera, Dinesh Chandimal.
The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is coming to Australia from 16 October to 13 November 2022.
Pakistan were dealt a huge blow with Shaheen Afridi being ruled out of the upcoming Asia Cup after being advised a 4-6 weeks rest by the medical team following an injury to the right knee ligament.
